LEADERSHIP STYLE INTERVIEW FOR A COMPANY’S NEWSLETTER

Resources: The Art and Science of Leadership, Ch. 4 & Ch. 6 and Leadership Newsletter Article Template.

Select someone, [other than yourself] in a leadership position at your organization or at a local company where you might seek employment. This individual could be a director, manager, supervisor, or CEO of the organization.

View the video in the Phoenix Career Guidance System™ (Milestone 7.8-Do informational interviews) for tips on interviewing a potential employer through an investigative interview.

Interview an individual who has a leadership role. You must clearly demonstrate that you have “interviewed” this person.

Write a 850- to 1,200-word profile of the individual that you interviewed for your company’s newsletter, and include the following:

Identify the individual and their position within the company, and briefly describe the organization.
Interpret the individual’s leadership style based on the Five-Factor personality model, and offer one or more examples of the management and leadership roles of this individual.
Explain one incident where this individual had to solve a difficult problem or situation because things did not go as planned.
Describe the lessons that she/he learned from being able to problem solve, even when what she/he had been taught did not work.
Format your profile in the form of a newsletter (the final format may vary depending upon the company’s style; please feel free to use either the provided template or to check the Internet or Microsoft® Word for additional newsletter templates).
